Great video! Good reminder on matches too. We've all got them in our packs. Sometimes feels like cheating to think of using them. But if you're fortunate to have them why not appreciate them and take advantage of them. Enjoyed the ramblings too :)

+Daryl Francis Oggi 29 MARZO 2015, ho avuto modo di visionare il tuo post, nessuno di quelli che sono intervenuti hanno parlato dell'assenza dell'anello. (A. tabescens non ha l' anello). Il 5 Maggio 2014 ho fotografato esemplari di A. mellea nel bosco di Forenza,(Regione Basilicata Italia). Negli anni '70 un 14 Luglio ho raccolto esemplari di A. mellea ,nel mese di Agosto (siamo in montagna 836m sul livello del mare, una abbondante produzione di A. mellea. Salutandoti amichevolmente, ti invito a vedere il mio blog.( Il fungo della foto è A . tabescens ).

I hived this swarm a couple days ago. It was outside of my reach; probably 15' off the ground. At the beginning of this AutoAwesome compilation G+ produced from my footage you can see the orange cordage with a weight tied to the end of it I used to throw over the limb and pull it down to where I could reach it. Hived it and took it home after the Sun set. 

My son and I checked on this hive in our apiary last evening. Bees were coming and going from the little front entrance. I will transfer these foundationless frames out of the cardboard nuc into a regular hive body this weekend. Then we will enjoy observing this wild swarm for behavior that we might want to raise queens from.

Nice work! Great creativity. Like you said, "use what you have." It doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.

Great work. Your work is an inspiration on how to improve your situation and figure out how to be comfortable living outdoors. I love your videos!

Well this is good news! After all most people don't realize the cheap honey they buy from the supermarket is not pure. You could call it "honey sauce" because it's got corn syrup. Pure honey is expensive. And pure honey is good for you. 
 
FDA Issues New Guidelines to Stop Misrepresentation of Natural Honey #bees #beekeeping
In a bid to stop misrepresentation of Natural Honey, the Food and Drug Administration has issued new guidelines to force many companies to mention the reality on the package labels of sugary, sticky honey blends that are actually made using syrups or sweeteners not made naturally by bees.

It's hard work producing Pure Honey. Most people compare the price of honey sold in the supermarket or Wal-Mart to what the local beekeeper sells not realizing they are entirely different. And most of the time the only ones motivated to educate people on why local small-scale honey is worth more is the local beekeeper who has dedicated years caring for his bees to make a healthy product worth being proud of.

But, +Bob Wardell, those who use local Pure Honey know it's worth. They are the best customers. They consider themselves lucky to live near a local beekeeper. They value local Pure Honey because they know it's amazing health benefits!

I don't even know what most of this means, but it certainly looks crazy :)
